Just How Long Can A Long String Be {Book Review}

Just How Long Can A Long String Be by Keith Baker

We recently read Just How Long Can A Long String Be?! by Keith Baker.

My 2-year-old picked it out because of the bird on the cover, and both my girls liked it.

It’s a simple rhyming text about a bird and an ant discussing that they can do with a long string, such as tie up a package or make a nest.

My 4-year-old got excited about finding the ant on each page, then her sister followed suit.

So each time we read it, they point out the little bug:  “There’s the ant!”

It’s a cute book, and both girls liked it and have requested it over and over.  It was a library book, and we’ll definitely be borrowing it again.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies {just add chocolate chips to 3-ingredient peanut butter cookies!}

I love these cookies.

First off – it’s tough to beat a 3-ingredient cookie.  Especially one that tastes this good.

But add chocolate:  pure, unadulterated awesomeness.

And the darn things taste like Reeses peanut butter cups!

Seriously.

Okay, look at that photo.  Four things in this cookie.

That’s it.

You have no excuse not to make these.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

First, mix together some peanut butter, sugar, and an egg.

Then stir in chocolate chips.

Roll up some dough, flatten with fork, sprinkle with extra sugar.

Try not to devour them before you bake them.

My little helping hands decided the remaining chocolate chips should be spread over the counter.

Easier access.  :)

And my oldest daughter decided that we should put chocolate chips on top of most of the cookies before baking them, but, just so you know, they didn’t stick.

Look at that beautifulness.

These cookies are seriously addicting.  Very tempting.

I may have to make half a batch next time.

{And I think I forgot to include the yield amount in the printable recipe… it makes 24 cookies.}

And, below, is a photo of little fingers making off with my photo props.  :)

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies {and sneaky fingers!}

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup creamy peanut butter

Mix the peanut butter, sugar, and egg until combined.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Shape a generous teaspoonful of the batter into a circle. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten by pressing a fork into the top in an X pattern.

Generously sprinkle granulated sugar over the top of the cookies.

Bake until set, about 18 minutes.

Cool on pan for two minutes, then move to wire racks to cool.
